organizations and utilizes her deep understanding of the strategic image
management and branding world to develop powerful personal brands that resonate

herself in Europe in support of executives traveling to Asia to
promote the early stages of cross-cultural and truly global ventures. It was

transcend all languages and cultures. Ms. Thomas can be called a true pioneer
in identifying the possession of these skills to be the root of most social and
